The support from fellow players for former Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson continued on Saturday, with Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman coming to Jackson's defense.

Sherman tweeted out a message of encouragement for Jackson, alluding to the Eagles decision to release the three-time Pro Bowler, reportedly based in part on who Jackson hangs out with away from the field.

Included in the tweet was a photo from Sherman's childhood when he and Jackson were teammates in Little League baseball. Check it out below.

Pretty cool photo, that must of been one heck of an athletic team.
